Created by gDesklets Desklet Team and last modified

This branch will contain some basic desklets that should be provided with the gDesklets distribution so that users can see the system in action without installing additional stuff. They should be under free software license preferably GNU/GPL version 2 or later so that other gdesklets team members can improve them and fix the bugs. Some ideas: clock, calendar, sysinfo, sticky notes, weather, POP/IMAP mail notification, quote of the day ...

Please use this guidelines when creating desklets for this branch:
1. use generic names (e.g. clock, calendar ...),
2. look at the log file if there are any errors that need to be fixed when desklet is running,
3. create simple icon for desklet (187x161 px),
4. keep preferences simple, use tabs if necessary rather than one big page,
5. discuss the addition in gDesklets-list mailing list (gDesklets-list@gnome.org)
6. adjust the Makefiles according to your changes

Add iCalendarEvent to basic Controls.

This is mainly for the built-in Calendar.

66. By Joe Sapp

Convert events to icalendar (RFC 2445) format.

Only converted "general" set of events that could be calculated in the
Gregorian calendar relatively easily. We should convert the other
event sets, but we need someone who can read/translate them.
